12/11 ~ 2200 yards
* 400 warm up then 100-200-300-400-300-200-100 with a 200 cool down
* This was also my first time at Eastern Market pool on a Sunday and it wasn't very crowded which is good to know
12/12 ~ 1650 meters
* swam this one straight as I only have a half hour in the pool after coaching since Fairland decided it would be a good idea to close their pool at 9 now. I got kicked out of the pool as usual.
12/13 ~ 2400 yards
* 200 warm up with 100-200-400-600-400-200-100 and 200 cool down
* My left shoulder issue started acting up again and my whole arm was numb making this swim a really beast to get through.
12/14 ~ 3000 yards
* 400 warm up then 1 x 1000, 4 x 200, 4 x 100 with a 400 cool down
* This is my longest swim to date :) It also helps that I wasn't held back by the usual pool closing time restrictions I always have to deal with.
12/15 ~ 1600 meters
* back to swimming after coaching so I had to swim this one straight again
12/16 ~ 2400 yards
* 400 w/u then 2 x 500, 5 x 200
* I felt really good during this swim despite not wanting to drag my ass to the pool on a Friday.
12/17 ~ 2200 yards
* 2 x 200, 1 x 1000, 4 x 200
* I actually thought about something else other than trying to remember what lap I was on. This in itself is amazing!
After Saturday's swim session I realized setting up a challenge and having a goal in mind really helped motivate me. With being the off season and no races to be training for this month, having this small little goal/challenge really gave a little bit more of a purpose to my sessions. I also realized that I have no clue what swim workouts should be or are suppose to be. I still label myself as a new swimming and I really have no clue what I'm doing.
Have you ever set yourself up a challenge? Did you stick with it ?
Happy Monday All :)
